Two days ago a bunch of activist climate change cultist blocked trains in Worcester, Ayer, and Bow, NH to protest the fact that the drains were delivering coal.
This is why I’ll never take “climate change” seriously. Because the people screaming about it the loudest are all assholes. If you block a train you’re not helping anything. The train will not turn around, and it will end up bringing the shit you hate to the people you hate where it will be used. All you’re doing is endangering the public by tying up police resources. Not a single one of the protesters arrested in Ayer actually lives in Ayer. None of them pay taxes that go to the police, yet here they are using denying services from taxpaying residents because they wanna play on the railroad tracks and virtue signal about climate change.
But because we live in Massachusetts there will be no punishment for this:
A judge dismissed charges against ten protesters accused of blocking a freight train delivering coal to a New Hampshire power plant in the early Sunday morning. The protest was part of a larger action over the weekend that stopped a train delivering coal to Merrimack Station in three places: Worcester, Ayer and Hookset, N.H. Merrimack Station is a coal power plant in Bow, N.H. Environmental activists wearing orange vests and bundled against the cold stopped a train in Ayer at about 3:45 a.m. on Sunday. According to Assistant District Attorney Andrea Kelly, police repeatedly asked 10-20 protesters with signs condemning the use of coal to get off the tracks.
Roger Rosen of Arlington; Alex Chatfield of Lincoln; Morgan Mead of Wendell; Nathan Phillips of Newton; Sabine von Mering of Wayland; Jim Mulloy of Salem; Paul Shorb of Lincoln; Alyssa Bouffard of Medford; Michael Delman of Wayland; and Steve Gag of Boston were arraigned in Ayer District Court on Monday. All faced one count of walking or riding on a railroad track, which Judge Margaret Guzman dismissed at the request of prosecution. Protesters said the other two people arrested in Ayer were Jeff Gang of Cambridge and Wen Stephenson of Wayland. They said neither were present at the arraignment, because they were in court in Concord, N.H., for charges related to a different protest against the power plant.
You ever notice how climate change cultists are almost exclusively white people from wealthy suburbs? Wayland, Cambridge, Arlington, Newton, Lincoln, and even the Western Mass hippie town of Wendell. This is probably the only time any of these frauds has ever been to Ayer. You almost never see people of color joining in these protests. Probably because if you’re so well off that you have time to worry about “climate change,” you’re probably an out of touch, wealthy, liberal white person.
So basically the message being sent here is that there are no laws. You can choose ANY political cause you want and use that as justification to block law abiding people from going where they want to go.
A spokeswoman for the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office, Meghan Kelly, wrote in an email “the cases were dismissed based on the facts and circumstances.” Earlier Monday, before the charges were dismissed, Judge Guzman said she was considering decriminalizing the charges.
“I have not heard facts that would be so egregious that would cause me to alter my thought that this really needs to be treated more as a civil infraction, potentially,” she said.
Since when do judges get to decriminalize crimes? Weed was illegal in this state until lawmakers voted to decriminalize it. Judges are paid to enforce existing laws, not redefine laws as they go along.
Judge Margaret Guzman is a 2009 Deval Patrick appointee. She graduated from BU and worked as a public defender prior to that. So her entire career has been on the side of criminals. That was her world view before entering her new line of work.
All you really need to know about her is that she recently taught a class on “racial bias in the jury selection” at Clark.
In other words, the people she dismissed the charges for think the same way she does ideologically, so they get let off the hook. I’m sure she would do the same thing if a nutjob right wing protester handcuffed themselves to a Planned Parenthood. Definitely.
The guy leading the protest is the one person who isn’t white – Nathan Phillips. No, not the douchebag who banged a drum in a kid’s face and then cried victimhood. This is another douchebag of the same name who is a professor at BU.
This is where AOC went to school. This is the kind of guy people like her pay $200K to learn from so they can go on to become bartenders and whine about school loan debt. It’s all starting to make sense now. From the looks of his Twitter he pretty much does this all day, every day.
“We will stop you.”
That’s a guy threatening to break the law because he knows he can. Welcome to Massachusetts.
